    I find it's always good check the Vegas convention bureau and vegas blogs for other events like music festivals first when planning a date. Then get a hotel rate booked before you book a non-refundable airfare.

    Agreed! Although it looks like OP booked at Ballys. Good choice OP! Don't forget to eat at BLT.

    I think it's a glitch in the connection between the hotel web site and MLife site and the booking database.

    There are huge swaths of dates all summer that earlier today were showing sold out and are now only showing West Wing and/or Skylofts rooms available.

    But when I went into the old style booking engine via a link from Smarter Vegas, it looked OK (I just checked again, and now those links are screwed up too.

    There's no way they're sold out all those dates. You may be able to book if you call, that's what I plan to do if they don;t get it fixed in the next day or so.

    Calling is also a good idea! Especially if you're in the Mlife program I've often found comps and deals that didn't show up in email or on the Mlife website.

    Billboard Awards are on the 21st. I was trying to figure it out myself. Found the Palms for $100.00 on the Saturday night then the rest of the week is comped at rio, thankfully.
